Compiègne in France will host the second of this season’s Dressage Nations Cup events, starting tomorrow and concluding on Sunday, May 19.
Twenty nations from around the world will be taking part in this International Equestrian Federation (FEI) competition, including Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Germany will be represented by Helen Langehanenberg, ranked fourth in the world, who won individual silver and team gold at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games in Caen.
Britain will be represented by three-times Olympian, 64-year-old Richard Davison, ranked 47th in the world, Charlotte Fry, Carl Hester and Gareth Hughes.
Emmelie Scholtens, ranked 24th in the world and ninth at last year’s World Championships, is in the Dutch team.
The opening round of the series – which was established in 2013 with four rounds – took place in Wellington.
Five more rounds will be held – in Uggerhalne, Denmark, Geesteren in the Netherlands, Järvenpää in Finland, Falsterbo in Sweden and Aachen in Germany – before the series concludes at Hickstead from July 25 to 28.
